Riassunto: The highly acclaimed bestseller from one of Australia's greatest architects, with an introduction by Christos Tsiolkas.
Fifty years on, Robin Boyd's The Australian Ugliness remains the definitive statement on how we live and think in the environments we create for ourselves. In it Boyd railed against Australia's decorative approach to design and slavish imitation of all things American. His concerns are as important now, in an era of sustainability, suburban sprawl and inner-city redevelopment, as they were half a century ago.
Caustic and brilliant, The Australian Ugliness is a masterpiece that enables us to see our surroundings with fresh eyes. Robin Boyd's original sketches and an afterword by major contemporary architects complement this handsome anniversary edition.
'Effortlessly readable, sharply observant and wittyâ€¦an Australian classic.' Brenda Niall
